    I understand there are some ways to implement it with hotkeys but the idea of making an overlay that supports only 4 resolutions max and even then only by manually changing them does not sound like a good idea to me. I'll just stick with everything in one corner.

    @SalamatiQus Of course you can set the hotkeys to zoom in and out your OSD, so you don't need fixed resolutions...

    RTSS and MSI are the best PC gaming tools ever created that keep getting improvements and is distributed for free, I will never understand when people complain about choices/features .Now I am not saying you have to use the tools but saying thanks for what has already been done is always a good place to start .

    One other thing the free tools have been downloaded and used by PC gamers so much ,they become like Mc Donald's ,everyone stopped counting the downloads .My attempt at humor

    I am not really in the clear and I do feel like there is some tension regarding my posts so let me clear it up a bit.
    I asked a question about certain feature and the answer was "no". There was a suggestion to simulate what I was asking about with hotkeys invoking different overlay configurations but as I prefer "set and forget" approach I decided against it and so I will keep using my configuration with features provided as is.
    In no way I intended to insult anyone for anything.
    I will not reply on this "issue" as it derails from main topic of this thread.

    New beta is in development. OverlayEditor plugin just got new cool features, allowing you to add complex animations to your overlays. Short demo video is available @ my channel:



    Stay tuned!

    It is a bit offtopic, but I just noticed that the last patch for Doom Eternal finally added an in-game option for disabling presentation from compute queue. It is not that important for the latest versions of Steam and RTSS overlays, which recently added special separate overlay rendering codepaths for present from compute mode, but this in-game option can be used to solve compatibility/performance issues with other overlays.

    May I ask what your opinion is whether HDR output to display would be possible with Vulkan async present, or in other words: What would the game developer have to do to make it work?

    They'd have to not use the windows hdr api.

    Hm, I think Doom Et. uses at least Nvidia's API? It can toggle HDR on without the Windows option enabled.

    Thanks anyway! :)

    then im not sure why they are using d3d interop for it, vulkan has had hdr support for some time now.

    They don’t use D3D interop from the game. NVIDIA driver does that internally for Vulkan HDR applications.

    New RTSS 7.3.0 beta 5 build 21820 is available:


    It adds advanced animations support to OverlayEditor, which I already demontrated in my previous video. In addition to that, I've implemented the following new features/improvements:

    - In the previous video I mentioned some critically important rules, which must be considered when referencing a data source from other data source's correction formula. I decided to simplify the process, so data sources order in no longer important in this case. I've added support for forward variables declaration in correcion formula translator, so now correction formulas can refrence other data sources even when they are defined in the list below.
    - Initially animated embedded images used hardcoded 0.5 frame animation bias, which provided best result for round indicator sprites defined in sample overlay layout. However it was necessary to remove animation bias hardcoding to implement smooth passive looped animations (like rotated fan animation demonstrated in my previos video). So now there is new animation bias option in embedded animated image settings dialog. Animation bias affects target sprite selection rule. For example, if we map 0-110% range to 11 sprites animating round indicator, we'll see the following target sprite selection rule:

    0-9% - sprite 0, 10-19% - sprite 1, 20-29% - sprite 2 ... 90-99% - sprite 9, 100% - sprite 10
    and with animation bias set to 0.5 it changes to:
    0-5% - sprite 0, 6-15% - sprite 1, 16-25% - sprite 2 ... 86-95% - sprite 9, 96%-100% - sprite 10

    - Sample overlay layout includes animated GPU fan incidator now, created with approach demonstrated in my previous video.
    - Sample overlay layout includes HDD and network usage/read/write/donwload/upload rates displayed as a table. It demontsrates both embedded table and performance counter based data sources usage.
    - Sample overlay now displays CPU and GPU power consumptions. GPU power consumtion is monitored by the plugin itself, CPU is taken from MSI AB, AIDA or HwInfo (per your choice).
    - I see that users didn't realize that embedded image colors can be blended with layer text color and changed this way. So now sample overlay demonstrates embedded image color blending on round CPU/GPU/RAM load indicators.
    - I decided to simplify implementation of 1-to-1 pixel mapping for embedded images (discussed here). It is no longer necessary to increase specified width/height by 1 pixel to get exact pixel-to-pixel mapping. 8-bit palettized PNG images witha alpha, mentioned in that thread, are also supported properly now.
    - This beta should address issue with Vulkan instance and device handle leak in Vulkan bootstrap layer, mentioned in this thread. So issue with RetroArch should be fixed.

    Small video of stress-testing this functionality and refreshed overlay layout in DooM 2016:



    Stay tuned!

    Come on people, dude does awesome stuff for free. Some likes or some positive remarks would be welcome I bet, instead of the same old negative crap. No other free tool can do anything close to this stuff. I say thank you.
